How you make money

Artworks are sourced from institutions, galleries, artists or individuals. Prior to platform listing, the artwork’s market value is determined by industry-leading, independent experts and it is authenticated. Shares in the fund holding the artwork are made available to qualifying investors in compliance with relevant regulations. Artwork is kept in special facilities or free zones in Delaware, Geneva or London. Valuations are conducted twice a year by independent experts until the work is sold. A ‘Mintus Secondary Market’ will be available to investors in permitted locations. Mintus will auction or privately sell artworks, typically between 2-7 years after Mintus’ date of purchase, once we believe they have reached optimal value.

How they make money

The costs of managing the investment, including insurance, maintenance and storage are included in the investment price. If the purchase price and the standard costs are above the market valuation, Mintus doesn’t offer the painting. As Mintus acquires the paintings directly from galleries and collectors, there are no additional commissions or mark-ups added to the purchase price. When the artwork is sold, Mintus will manage the exit fees and costs as described in the relevant Investment Memorandum. These will include a fee of 1% of the value of the artwork to cover management costs, and performance fees equivalent to 20% of the profit generated from the sale.

Investment Risks

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. This is the case for specific pieces of art, for the artist’s market, for the art market as a whole, for Mintus, and for the funds managed by Mintus. Any historical returns, expected returns, or probability projections are not guaranteed and may not reflect actual future performance. Any investment involves a risk of loss, and prospective investors are urged to carefully consider whether an investment is suitable for them. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and investors may not get back their money originally invested. Investments in art, or in companies owning art, are highly illiquid and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 5 years) should not invest. All securities involve a high degree of risk and may result in partial or total loss of your investment. Your capital is at risk. You should carefully read the Information Memorandum concerning the investment and the underlying asset held, and the associated risks specific to that asset and investment.
